- For the card front: Turn the card with the fold at the top. Cut brown cardstock to cover the front. Cut 6¼"x4¾" Color Me™ stripes paper. Place the paper on the craft sheet and place stencil tape along the inside edge of the first stripe. Swipe the brown ink pad over the first stripe, being careful not to get ink on the rest of the paper. Wipe off the excess ink and let dry a couple minutes. Carefully remove the tape and repeat the process across the paper, leaving a couple stripes white. When coloring stripes side by side, it's best to place tape on each side of the stripe before inking. When dry, glue the paper to the cardstock. Glue ribbon across the paper ⅞" from the bottom, gluing the ends on the back. Glue the constructed front to the card.
- Follow the package instructions to punch out and assemble the filmstrip papier tole piece, placing foam tape between the layers. Mat on brown cardstock with 1/16" borders. Place the 2⅛" oval Dazzles™ frame on teal cardstock and cut out. Glue it and the papier tole piece to the card and trim off the excess papier tole paper as shown. Stamp “birthday wishes” in brown on tan cardstock, then place the 1⅞" Dazzles™ frame on it and cut around the edge. Foam tape to the teal label. Knot a 3" ribbon and glue next to the greeting as shown.
- For the inside: Cut 5⅛"x3½" Color Me™ swirls paper and mask and ink as shown. Mat on brown cardstock with 1/16" borders, then glue centered on the inside. Stamp “count your life…” in brown near the top of the brown tag, tie a 5" ribbon to it, and glue to the inside as shown. Place the 2¾" Dazzles™ frame on tan cardstock and cut around the edges. Stamp “count your age…” in brown on it and foam tape as shown.
